50% Off KN95 masks!
We just got our hands on KN95’s that we’ve tested with an independent team here in the United States for quality. According to the FDA regulations, if you don’t have N95’s available, it’s preferable to use a CDC whitelisted KN95 over a regular KN95.
However, these are perfect for anyone at high risk for COVID that can’t pay for an expensive N95 each time they go out.
We’re so excited about this offer, that we’re selling them for 50% off until 6/9. Buy it now!!

There are 3 governing bodies that have standards – the US standards, by the ASTM, and also CDC/NIOSH standards. There is also the European standards, then the Chinese standards.
ASTM Standards + CDC/NIOSH N95 Standards:
The ASTM has 3 levels of certification – ASTM level 1,2 and 3. Each has certain minimum requirements.
The CE has 3 levels of certification – FFP1, FFP2 and FFP3.
The Chinese equivalent certification is called the KN95.
These disposable N95 respirator masks are certified as FFP2, as well as KN95’s by a Chinese lab. We’ve had them 3rd party audited for quality on our side as well.

Why do many Chinese face masks have such low quality?
With the demand for face masks skyrocketing, there are tens of thousands of new factories that now manufacture face masks. The lab certification merely states that the mask sent to the lab meets the standards.
There is no independent verification that ALL masks are high quality. We’ve had our own 3rd party inspect these masks, and they have met the standards we demand.
Beware of fakes/non-certified masks:
Unfortunately, there are many scammers galore with the current mask shortage. We buy factory direct, ensure that the factory has all of the required certifications, and inspect all of the boxes before they leave the factory.
There are many sellers online that are selling face masks that aren’t certified. Please make sure to check before you buy.
What should a medical practitioner use?
Ideally, medical practitioners should be using respirator masks. These masks have a much smaller particulate filter. They do require experience tightening properly but ensure that a minimum of 98% of bacteria can not penetrate the mouth. It is also advised that practitioners use eye goggles or face shields.
In terms of certification, the CDC has a NIOSH certification, and those masks are called “N95’s”. There are very few companies that are actually NIOSH certified. In CE certification, those are called FFP2’s.
Due to the scarcity of masks that are certified, the FDA has released guidelines allowing KN95’s (the Chinese equivalent) to be used by practitioners.
The FDA has a list of whitelisted KN95 manufacturers that are approved for emergency use.
